NCB Show – The Club Pass ReturnsFebruary 4, 2010 By: Bryan Bass
In the last installment of Nightclub Confidential we shared some of the exciting news about the premium events taking place at some of the country’s hottest nightclubs during the upcoming Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show, but those three events are just the tip of the iceberg. We have created a comprehensive calendar of events that will allow attendees to take advantage of special offers, gain entrance and mix and mingle like Las Vegas locals!
NCB’s annual Club Pass Program returns this year, offering excitement in addition to each night’s big event. It all starts on Sunday, March 7 with a kickoff celebration and what might just be the best alternative party NCB has ever thrown. NCB attendees are invited to join industry locals to celebrate the Locals’ Launch of NCB at the brand-new Vanity Nightclub at the Hard Rock Hotel. Sunday is a big night for Las Vegas locals as they get to unwind from a busy weekend of catering to travelers and have some fun themselves. At Vanity, there will be a packed house as NCB attendees and locals alike celebrate the return of The Show.
The next night, the House of Blues’ members-only Foundation Room will open up its doors to NCB attendees for one of Vegas’ longest running and most successful industry parties, Godspeed. Located on the roof of Mandalay Bay, the Foundation Room has long offered stunning views of the Las Vegas Strip in an exclusive and posh environment, and this event will be no different.
On Tuesday, March 9, two venues open their doors to NCB attendees as part of the NCB Club Pass program. First at The Venetian, one of the city’s newest venues, Smokin’ Hot Aces, will welcome our badge holders as rock ‘n’ roll takes center stage. The new bar offers an approachable and exciting brand of Sin City nightlife that is definitely all about the rock ‘n’ roll. With a stage, DJs and a riff-packed jukebox from TouchTunes, Smokin’ Hot Aces is all about the rock music and we are pretty sure you will approve.
Also on Tuesday night, the annual GLBT Party will return, catering to our alternative audience. In past years, we have teamed up with the hottest alternative venues and thrown a great party, but this year we are upping the ante even further by joining forces with Industry PM and Q Vegas to host our annual GLBT Party at the MGM Grand’s decadent Tabu Ultra Lounge. The city’s first ultra lounge still can be counted among the city’s best and most beautifully designed, and teaming up with local industry leaders will bring together an alternative audience for a jam-packed party that might just be one of the best of the convention.
Finally, on Wednesday, March 10, as the convention closes its doors, the NCB Club Pass will give attendees one last evening of fun at LAVO Nightclub, located inside the Palazzo. From the creators of TAO Nightclub comes a bathhouse-inspired venue that has attracted a strong following with an intimate setting, unique décor and a beautiful crowd that loves to party. At LAVO, the focus will be on fashion as Label Junky continues its usual Wednesday night course, complete with stunning models showcasing new fashions and trends in partnerships with some of Las Vegas’ top boutiques.
All in all, the Club Pass offers a diverse mix of venues and events to compliment Monday’s 25th Anniversary Party at HAZE Nightclub, Tuesday’s Top 100 Nightclub party at XS Nightclub and the return of the DJ Spin-Off on Wednesday night at TAO Nightclub. Pick up tickets to all the events and just bounce around, enjoying the very best Las Vegas has to offer. After all, it is the Nightclub & Bar Show and there is a reason the convention floor doesn’t open until noon!
